United States religious fundamentalist blames gay people for drought


This video from the USA is called Crippling Drought in the Golden State: California Soul.

Not so long ago, in January 2014, there was flooding in Britain. Then, a politician of the far right Ukip party blamed LGBTQ people for those floods.

Now, there is an extreme right religious fundamentalist in USA, also blaming LGBTQ people for natural forces. This time, not for too much, but for too little water.

Gay Marriage to Blame for California’s Epic Drought, Bill Koenig Claims

Anastasia Pantsios | May 8, 2015 10:56 am

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of Obergefell vs. Hodges. The decision in that case, expected in June, could legalize marriage equality across the country in the dozen states that have not done so on their own.

But as that possibility inches closer, opponents have become more desperate and outlandish. Blaming gay marriage for everything wrong in the country seems to be their go-to explanation, even when things are wildly disconnected—such as climate change. When they’re not busy denying climate change exists, they just say it’s happening because God is angry that gay people aren’t being persecuted enough.

The latest to step forward with this explanation is commentator and White House correspondent Bill Koenig of the conservative World Watch Daily, which lists its beats as “wars and rumors of wars, economic news, military buildups, terrorism, political situations, difficult relations between countries, famines, natural disasters and drastic or record-breaking weather.”

It’s the last that Koenig recently connected to the move to assure equality rights for LGBT people. Talking to hosts Jan Markell and Eric Barger on the evangelical radio show Understanding the Times, which pushes the idea that all the conflicts and controversies in the world are part of God’s plan for what they see as the Biblical “end times,” Koenig claimed that gay rights in the U.S. are angering God so much he created the drought in California.

Breaking: rain in southern California: here. Also because of LGBTQ people!? [sarcasm off]
